absolutely considering running for govern governor, as well as giving other options some consideration. i'll be focused on that the next week to 10 days or so and really come up with a decision that answers my basic question which is where do i believe-- and hopefully later the voters will agree with me-- where can i make the biggest difference for the city i love and the nation i pledged my life to. >> schieffer: when do you think you will make a final decision? >> it has to be in the next few weeks. especially in new jersey, there are a lot of very good candidates for governor in new jersey on the democratic side and i have to give my party and be a part of my party's push forward, whether me as a candidate or supporting other candidates for that office. >> schieffer: if you decide not to run for governor, is there any chance you might run for another office, say senate, for example? >> yeah, i'm actually, look at that a lot as well, and trying to get back. life, ultimately, is not about a position. it's about a purpose. and my purpose they try to focus on every single day is how can i
about government but putting a political agitating force beside it. it may not be good for the conservative movement but it is a change. >>ic it's sad. i remember heritage is where obamacare came from. the idea of an individual mandate came from student butler from the merge heritage foundation. we're at the moment where interesting thinking is happening among younger conservativees, on a lot of the social issues bedelving us, like health care. i don't know that jim demint is all that interested in that kind of stuff. >> schieffer: what about norah, the republican party in general? where does it go from here? it got beat when all the indicators suggested they should have won this election, if you just went by the economic indicatores, and all of that, and yet, president obama won. >> well, look at all the-- those who are leading the republican ticket presumably, for 2016, whether it's rubio ryan, jeb bush, all of them acknowledge that the party has got to change to some degree, and especially rubio and bush, conditionalling the need to attack on issues like immigration
holds rise. >> schieffer: maya. >> what's outrageous is the way we govern is playing games of chicken and the losers losers are going to be the american public and the economy. we know what's going to have to happen. we know revenues are going to have to go up. we know we have to reign in spend .gz we know we have to reform entitlements. we know it will be hard work, a $4 trillion plan which is what it will take, is going to be filled with things we don't like. but we also know what we're doing by going up to the bring, waiting until the last minute, and adding all this uncertainty is creating a huge cost to the economy. the cheapest form of stimulus is certainty. and we don't have any of that right now. what you see is ceos not being able to hir. small businesses not being able to invest. and households not knowing if we will have a real recovery. and basically the election is over. and what people want is to stop the fighting and to see real governing and put in place a solution. the problem is not the policy at this point. it's the politics. and we have to find a way to bring them
income beneficiaries. and we propose ways to make the government much smarter about how it buys medicine for medicare beneficiaries. >> schieffer: why did you choose to basically say "we're going to stop letting congress have the ability to raise the debt ceiling." >> we are not prepared to let the threat of default on america's credit, the savings of americans, the investments of americans be held00 to the political agenda of a group of people in congress over time. as you saw last august, that was very damaging to the american people. it's not the responsible way it govern. >> schieffer: are you betting eventually the republicans will cave on the taxes? >> there's no-- there's no path to an agreement that does not involve republicans acknowledging that rates have to go up for the wealthiest americans. >> schieffer: you're saying you can't do it just by eliminating deductions and other-- >> very good question. you know, we've taken a careful look at this, and we think we should limit deduction but if you look carefully at how to do this, there is no way to raise a meaningful amount of r
